The Wayne Hills High School Chamber Choir performed Christmas carols at Willowbrook Mall Monday.
The event was one of many of its kind held in North Jersey and New York City. The events marked the unveiling of the new holiday window in the Lord & Taylor store in Manhattan. The group sang a cappella.
Choral groups marked the occasion by singing 10 traditional Christmas carols including "The First Noel," "Silent Night," and "Deck the Halls."
The choir is an ensemble of 10th, 11th, and 12th graders and meets five days a week. Throughout the year, the choir learns various geners and performs in three annual concerts and numerous community events.
“It’s an incredible group of performers and a pleasure to represent Wayne Hills High School,” director Cara Palomba said. “It was also a great way to kick off the holidays.”
Palomba said the performers have formed a bond between each other, just like athletes on sports teams do.
“It’s incredible to see that happen over time,” Palomba said. “They’ve learned how to trust each other.”
The choir will perform at the township’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the municipal building Dec. 8.
